An empirical investigation of gender and time use in Uganda

The report presents findings of a study on time use and role allocation by gender in Uganda.  The findings show that males and females are different along many dimensions. Males are more educated than females, and hence they are more likely to be decently employed compared to their female counterparts. In terms of occupational choice, the results show that on one hand, males were more likely to be employed by government or private organizations, and to operate private businesses compared to females. Females, on the other hand, were more likely to participate in unpaid work, conduct petty trade such as selling a few items on the streets, and participate in agriculture.
